The dada project
dada is a journey to spontaneous creation. Starting with a chord, a strum, a hit, a word, an image or a memory, the whole musical-sonic-visual journey unveils for the spectators. The tools? Experimentation, improvisation and the experiences of more than ten years of breathing music, images and sound (and travels, people, cities and so on)
Not only the images and music are conceived in the very momento, also the sounds character of each instrument and the places that they will occupy in the space are subject to the “humor” of the moment.
Each sound and process have its own visual counterpart so the experience is completed by real time generated images along with the music that is being composed. It´s kind of a giant audiovisual instrument and its consequence is a piece that transmutes from show to show.
His most recent release Otoño -Autumn- has reached the number one in Mexico´s instrumental music charts according to N1M. The song was conceived during a live show of his current impro-visual tour dada. The song proposes a two directions journey. One through the melody and the arrangements that are evolving during the song, and the other, more sonic than musical due to the huge immersive mix full of delays, reverbs and real time processing
